|The east side of Kastellorizo harbour: the southeast corner of the harbour.
|Continuing from the centre of Kastellorizo town, the east side of the harbour was once the home of the island's wealthier citizens, and its commercial and social centre. This area suffered the worst destruction in July 1944 when a fire at a fuel dump spread to an arsenal and destroyed half of the island's homes.
Many gaps lie between the once densely packed hillside houses, and the remains of some surviving buildings on the narrow stepped streets are slowly being reconstructed and renovated.
